The team of Finnwards is the real deal! I will never forget the way our family of four was guided through unexpected hitches on both sides of the Atlantic. Minna’s unwavering kindness, cheerful energy, and wealth of inside knowledge made putting new roots in Finland easy and fun.

Minna has a very profound experience in international mobility and a very keen sense of cultural difference - her insightful (and witty) appraisals of Finnish professional environments, social conventions, traditions and history helped me to adapt to my new home more quickly.

Heidi and Minna of Finnwards both have expat experience. We know what it takes to build a new life in a foreign culture. We have lived in Europe, North America, Africa, Asia, and Oceania. 

We have also been extensively involved in international recruitment in our professional lives in Finland.

Our company name, Finnwards, is a play with words. 

Our mission is to help people moving to Finland build a satisfying and successful life here in Finland. We want to make sure that the recruitment of international talent is successful both from the point of view of the recruiting company and of the talent him/herself. We believe that international talents need accurate information about topics that’ll help them integrate and create their own unique way of living a Finnish life. 

Our tutorials help them towards Finland, Finns, and Finnishness. Thus our company name Finnwards, towards all things Finnish.
